Maple Leaf Sew Sweet Bee Block

Happy Wednesday!!
Hope you are having a great week so far?

October's Queen Bee is Renee over at Sewn With Grace
She asked for a maple leaf block in reds, oranges, 
yellows and purples. This is the perfect block for 
this time of year.  It is a fun block to make and is
 going to make a beautiful quilt.
It would be sew much fun to see the season's change.
Here our leaves just turn brown and fall off crispy.

Wishing you a beautiful day.

Sewing Binding

Hello Chickadee's
It is finally starting to feel a little like Fall
here.  The nights and morning's are much 
cooler.  I usually have the house decorated
already for Fall but I am behind.

I am working on sewing the binding  down
on this sweet baby quilt for a customer.  Normally
I do my hand sewing at night in front of the TV 
with my sweet hubby.  I got some of Lori's
and I just love them.  They are sew handy to keep your
hand sewing supplies in for travel or just to keep
things together.

This is what we did this weekend.  My hubby rented
this lift so we could get to the taller places to paint our
house where we can not get with a ladder.  I did get up there
but was to chicken.  So he went up and painted this area.
We still have tons to do, I really want to be finished by
November.  Well a girl can dream.  lol!!

Hope you enjoy your day.

Sew Sweet Bee, Some Quilting and Some Flags

Happy Friday Sweet Friends!

October has arrived so quickly.  I just
wish the cooler weather would arrive with
it.  lol!

September was Peggy's month to be Queen Bee.
She asked for this block, I think it is called
Stripes?  You can find the pattern on the Penny
Rose website.  Peggy asked us to make our blocks
with Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
(I really need to learn not to take pictures at night.)

I have been really blessed to be able to do
some customer quilting.  This customer
asked for snow flakes to be quilted on her quilt.
You know I got a picture of the quilting but
not the whole quilt before I mailed it back.  Geez. 
Hope you can see the quilting it was so much fun.

I am working other customer quilts right now
I will take pictures before I send them off.

While I was at retreat a couple weeks
ago I finished my flag blocks.  All I have to
do now is sew them into a quilt top.  I am
really looking forward to this one coming together.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend and that you get to do 
something that you LOVE.

Cozy Christmas Block 3 and Happy Mail

Happy Monday sweet friends!

Today is an umbrella type day just because you
do not know if you are going to get rained on
or not.  It looks a lot like Fall but I tell you it
does not feel that way. lol 

I got a little gardening done this weekend along
with a little sewing.

This is my block 3 of the Cozy Christmas sew
along.  It looks a lot like my real tree since I can
not get the garland straight on it either.  lol!
That is why Happiness is Homemade.
I love the way Lori sewed the red on her rick rack.
So I did the same thing.  It is not to late to start sewing
along.  You can join the fun here,

I got some Happy Happy Mail this weekend.  The perfect
tins by Lori Holt. These tins are sew supper cute and fun.  
The red tin comes with the cutest little note cards.  
If you too would like a set, you can buy them here.

Hope you are having a great day.

Cozy Christmas Sew Along

Happy Monday sweet friends.
Hope everyone had a great weekend?

Last Monday the Cozy Christmas Sew Along 
started over at Bee In My Bonnet.  


This is block 1.  
I am doing Lori's applique method because I 
like the look of the block.  The only 
thing different is I am machine sewing it
down instead of hand stitching it down.

I did block 2 over the weekend so I could
show you what I did today.  Since I wanted it
to look more like a cottage I added a little bit
of lace under my roof top.
All that is left is to do is hand stitch the smoke
coming out of the chimney.  
If you would like to see what Lori is doing on
her block 2 head over to her blog.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Sew Sweet Bee and Some Quilting

Happy Friday sweet friends!!

We have had a rainy week, and I have
been loving it.  No yard work, but that
will catch up to me later.  I have been spending
some time in my sewing room.  Ahhh!

This month Queen Bee is Missy from 
we make her a cake from one of Lori's pattern's from 
Bee In My Bonnet you can get some of Lori's 
patterns here or here.  This month is Missy's
Happy Birthday Missy!
I loved making this so much and it was sew
easy to do.  I just think the bow adds the sweetest

On the quilting front.

This customer had a fishing theme going on in
her quilt.  So I thought Tickle would be a great
way to quilt it.  To me it looks like water splashing.

Every year this sweet customer asks me to quilt
a t-shirt quilt that she donates to her church auction
in our little town.  Here is a sneak peak of one of the 
t-shirts and quilting.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend and get to
do what you love.
